My questions are numb in my eyes but not in my mind...

He questions to himself, He questions to us, Even he asks God about his life....why cant he smile? why cant he eat when extreme hunger attacks him? Why he has no shelter, no family? Is there any end of it??? or are things going to be more worse than now???

    Nothing is worse than to see a child’s pain and suffering. The reality on an imperfect humanity is truly sinful. A powerful image that will not escape my memory anytime soon.

    The meaning of your photo is very deep.
    The eyes of this boy and those of many other guys are sad.
    Your question is obvious: why?
    A very difficult problem to overcome.
